MCT Designer Challenge

Hello Thursday! Today's Designer Challenge is brought to you by MCT Designer, Nikki Foraker, aka Scrappin Navy Wife. She is the queen of embossing and her challenge to us today is to use embossing on our projects. It can be heat embossing, dry embossing or better yet BOTH!

I used the stitched layering hearts dies on my card to make this cut out border strip. I popped it with foam tape for dimension. I like how it looks.

My embossing comes in the form of my sweet little punch art lamb. Simple scallop circles {head and body}, circle cut in half for ears, partial oval for the face, and trimmed tiny fishtail tags for the legs. So easy!! I used my Cuttlebug polka dots embossing folder for the 'wool', and for the sweet face, which is a Peachy stamp of course, I used heat embossing so it would show up on the black. I like how it came out! Sentiment computer generated.

Hope you will join us for the Designer Challenge! Be sure to link up on the My Creative Time blog and you could be this week's winner! :)
